Chai Jewish center of Colonie is a home where everyone is welcome - regardless of affiliation, level of knowledge or observance.
We strive to create a warm, welcoming environment to explore and experience our heritage in a non-judgmental and inviting atmosphere.
We are founded on the principle that, while Jews may embrace many levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for all Jews - no labels, no affiliations - to develop a sense of community, to enhance the experience of being Jewish, to learn and enjoy Judaism.
...To Strengthen the Colonie Jewish Community by promoting Jewish pride, education and celebration.
...To provide for the spiritual & material needs of all Jews in the community - regardless of their background, affiliation or financial means, and to provide insight and explanation on Judaism’s history and universal values to our friends beyond the Jewish community who would like to learn more.
...To establish a warm and traditional community Center where everyone is made to feel welcome and comfortable.
